Hi everyone,

Silk Road is into it's third week after launch and I am very pleased with the results.  There are several sellers and buyers finding mutually agreeable prices, and as of today, 28 transactions have been made!

For those who don't know, Silk Road is an anonymous online market.

Of course, it is in its infant stages and I have many ideas about where to go with it.  But I am turning to you, the community, to give me your input and to have a say in what direction it takes.

What is missing?  What works?  What do you want to see created?  What obstacles do you see for the future of Silk Road?  What opportunities?

The general mood of this community is that we are up to something big, something that can really shake things up.  Bitcoin and Tor are revolutionary and sites like Silk Road are just the beginning.

I don't want to put anyone in a box with my ideas, so I will let you take it from here...

Really only your third week? I found you from the hidden wiki just about that long ago. I just assumed you must've been around for a long time.

The site has been in development for about four months, but was launched only three weeks ago.  I'll take it as a compliment that you thought it had been around longer Wink

I don't do drugs, but I do think that silk road is kind of a neat service for people who are into that sorta thing. Smiley

I can't view the site due to me being on a PowerPC Mac. Is there any Nootropics or "non-brain burning" drugs on there?

My hope is that eventually, more than just drugs will be listed there.  Drugs are an obvious direction to go in, however, because there isn't a good market for them currently.  I have a category for weapons as well because many people are restricted from purchasing these, but no one has listed in that category yet.  It would be great to hear if anyone has ideas for other kinds of products that would fit well at Silk Road.

I'm not entirely sure how to classify the following drugs, but they are listed as well under "prescription":
Viagra
Xanax
Alprazolam
Colnazepam
and Amphetamine salts

Have you accessed a tor hidden service before?  I think you can find a browser for PowerPC here: https://www.torproject.org/dist/vidalia-bundles/vidalia-bundle-0.2.1.30-0.2.10-ppc.dmg.  And here are some instructions: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-osx.html.en

This topic was briefly removed due to the "illegal trading" policy, but I decided that since you're not actually selling drugs in this thread, it's OK. (Maybe some other moderator/admin will disagree with my later decision, though.) Sorry about that.

Hm, mainstream stuff. None of it is of any use to me.

Thanks for the links. I'll stay tuned.

So, does one have to refrigerate dried P. cubensis? Storage and use instructions would help customers. ...Not that I currently possess any or have ever visited the Silk Road.

I really like the idea of the site!  What I'd like to see is a rating/reputation system of some sort, or just something that can make people feel safer that they aren't gonna get ripped off.  I'm not sure the best way to implement something like this.

I thought I saw discussion that something like this was going to be in place soon. Any word, SilkRoad?

It's a market with buyers and sellers and I guess no one is related to the operator.
Maybe buyers could have their wish list too that sellers may be inclined to service.
There could then be an order book with bid and ask for each product or service, and the more you want something the more you are willing to pay and attract new providers Wink

I would like to know which of the source forums these public vending sites came from. I know the source forum scene is huge these days and nobody is on ALL of the forums, but some background would be nice. What forums or trusted members will rep for you? RaveSupply is the only public vendor site right now that has a known history from the scene, although there are others being worked on. Just curious.

Undrugged used to be a good place to get ratings on vendors but you couldn't search through it for vendors if you didn't already know their contact information. You typed in their contact information and then could see and read reports on vendor product quality and legitimacy. Now there is Safe Or Scam which does pretty much the same thing but is run by different people than Undrugged used to be.

I am glad that now there are sites popping up that offer sourcing so publicly, make prohibition impossible to enforce!

There actually are some listings specifically by silkroad, rather than a random vendor.

Please make sure you are protected from intersection attacks. Tor is EXCELLENT for pure information smuggling, but when there is already geolocation intelligence from mailing (non-information smuggling) it is very weak to intersection attacks narrowing in on you. This poster made great points:

Does all this stuff just get shipped through the regular mail? I'm too paranoid to take the risk of customs officers turning up on my doorstep personally.
